my lyricsbox
I used to be so scared
Of going to Manners Mall
Of walking past those staring eyes
They made me feel so small
Creeping up and down
Trying to find a fault to see
So they could lock me up inside
And throw away the key

(Ah ah ah ah ahh ah ah)
(Ah ah ah ahh ahhh)

I've tried being someone else
Just so I could belong
I've lived my life in fear
Of putting one foot wrong
Although your words may hurt me
It's time for me to go
I'm trying to be myself now
And I think that you should know that...

I can go into town by myself if I want to
I look around at the world with my own eyes
And don't have to be afraid
Why do we try to be the same?
Competing with each other
All dressed up in brown cords and pajamas
Pretending to be cool

I watched the world go by
Through the window of my mind
But how I saw myself
Made friends hard to find
I wasn't sure you liked me
Although I think you tried
I wanted you to like me more
To fill the hole inside

(La la la la la la la la la-ahh)
(La la la la la la lahhh)

Accepting who I am
Didn't come from being the best
Or earning popularity
By passing all your tests
The thing that helped me most
Was when the realization came
That there's a God who loves me
Who knows me by my name, and now...

I can go into town by myself if I want to
I look around at the world with my own eyes
And don't have to be afraid
Why do we try to be the same?
Competing with each other
All dressed up in brown cords and pajamas
Pretending to be cool

I, I can go into town by myself if I want to
I look around at the world with my own eyes
And don't have to be afraid
Why do we try to be the same?
Competing with each other
All dressed up in brown cords and pajamas
Pretending to be cool

Be yourself 'cause you wanna be
Be yourself 'cause you wanna be
Be yourself 'cause you wanna be
Be yourself 'cause you want to be free
Be yourself 'cause you wanna be
Be yourself 'cause you wanna be
Be yourself 'cause you wanna be
Be yourself 'cause you want to be free
Like a bee, and the more they fly
Through the sky 'cause they're free (ah yeah)
They're free to be, free to be
Free to be who God made them to be
That's what I wanna be
That's what I wanna be
I really, I really, I really want to be free to be me
That's all I wanna be
I wanna be free to be me, free to be
And so I go to town

I can go into town by myself if I want to ('cause I want to)
I look around at the world with my own eyes
And don't have to be afraid
('cause I really, I really want to, I go to town)
Why do we try to be the same?
Competing with each other
All dressed up in brown cords and pajamas
Pretending to be cool
(I wanna be free, I want to be free to be me, that's all I wanna be)

I can go into town by myself if I want to
(Wanna be, I want to be free to be me)
I look around at the world with my own eyes
And don't have to be afraid
(Free to be who God made me to be, that's what I wanna be)
Why do we try to be the same?
Competing with each other (I want to be free)
All dressed up in brown cords and pajamas
(Yeah, I want to be free to be me)

Although your words may hurt me
It's time for me to go
I'm trying to be myself now
And I think that you should know
This song is from the album "Lost @ Sea".
